Drug and Alcohol charity Addaction is using an engaging eLearning Infection Control module to improve service delivery, which won the Best eLearning Programme in the Charity Learning Awards 2013.
Addaction created a bespoke Infection Control eLearning module to increase knowledge and confidence amongst staff in how to prevent, control and minimise the risk of infection. An accompanying Infection Control Resource Pack, housed on the Charity Learning Consortium’s Moodle LMS, was also produced, and an eLearning Support service set-up.
Since completing the module it was found that 85% of learners felt more confident, willing and able to take action in the event of an infection control concern. eLearning has since been embedded into working practices at Addaction, and managers are recognising the value of modules for personal and professional development.
Velda Barnes, Head of L&D at Addaction commented: “We are very proud to have had our work on this module recognised through a Charity Learning Award. It shows how collaboration and creative design can overcome the challenges of limited resources and have a real impact on working practices.”
